Frequently Asked Questions

Since having Joey I've acquired a list of things that people say all the time. It's kinda funny how I feel like I have the same conversations over and over just with different people:

1. Where does he get the red hair? (pick a side, really...)

2. Are you still breastfeeding?

3. Usually followed up with, oh wow... how much longer will you do that? (it's not like I'm breastfeeding my 4 year old... he's 5 months old... why are we so surprised?)

4. Does he sleep through the night? (depends on the night and what you qualify as sleeping through...)

5. Is he getting teeth soon? (I've been saying yes to this for 2 months now, and we still don't have a tooth... so really, I have no bloody idea!)

6. How much does he weigh? (better they're asking about his weight than mine!)

7. Is he always this happy? (yes!) :)

So sleepy

Joey was such a tired little guy today. We've been on the go everyday for over a week now, and I think it finally caught up to him. He slept all night long, then took a 3 hour nap, then another 1 hour nap and went to bed at 7:30. I totally wish that it was acceptable for me to sleep that much. Seriously. Just for a day or two...
Anyway, here is another Christmas pic:

Look What Santa Brought!

I was surprised at how interested Joey was in opening presents yesterday morning. He actually watched and reached for everything. It was such a special day filled with lots of presents and lots and lots of love! Joey has so many new toys to play with including a new climber (which he obviously isn't quite ready for yet...), a new buggy to ride on (almost ready for it!), lots of books, rattles, and other toys too!

By the way.... this video is very noisy... you will have to ignore all the excess "Santa Excitement" in the background!

It's my party and I'll cry if I want to...

Joey is not so good in large crowds anymore. He has become VERY attached to me when there are lots of other people around. You can see it in his face and by the way his body feels all tense too, so I think we are having a little shy phase right now. It doesn't bother me really, except that people want to hold him and pass him around, and that usually results in several meltdowns over the course of the evening. And the worst is the night that follows. I think because of all the stimulation, noise, people, etc. he has A LOT of trouble sleeping afterwards. He cried pretty much all night for the second Saturday in a row. :( poor little guy. So needless to say, I'm getting a little anxious about what the Christmas festivities will do to him. 3 days of parties in a row, at several different houses, with lots of familiar (and unfamiliar) faces. I think Joey and I will spend lots of our time in a quiet room.

On a lighter (and smellier) note...

he is officially a pooper again (3 days in a row!!! yay for prunes!!!)

And the bumbo seat makes him throw up. I think it has to do with the way he sits in it all scrunched on his belly. Kinda funny, but kinda gross too.

Something about Christmastime

I think it's time to start wrapping. Usually I wait until a day or two before Christmas, but I think that it is going to be near impossible to get done with a 5 month old hanging around. And I am NOT staying up until midnight on Christmas Eve to get it all done. As it is, the basement and extra bedroom (and parts of the kitchen and living room too) have been completely taken over by bags of gifts. So yea... it's time. Not tonight though (yawn), maybe tomorrow!

I've Been a VERY Good Boy...

Teresa and I took the munchkins to see Santa yesterday. Gabriella wasn't having it :( but Joey willingly sat with Santa and smiled for a cute little picture. Good thing Teresa told me to bring my own camera otherwise I would have had to pay 20 bucks for a picture. geesh!!!

Take me out to the (basket)ball game!

I put this outfit on Joey purely for Ron's enjoyment. I went out for a while and when I got home Ron informed be that he took about 30 pictures of Joey in it. I'll have to admit though, he does look pretty damn cute. :)

Say Cheeeeeese!

Ron and I made total idiots of ourselves the other day in an effort to get Joey to smile for our Christmas card. While we performed a 2-man circus, Joey just sat there staring at us like we were nuts for even thinking this would go well. It was like he knew it was important, and therefore refused to cooperate. Because as soon as I changed his clothes and put the camera away he was all giggles and smiles. Bugger.

We did eventually get a good one. On a different day, after washing the outfit (again), and offering new and improved circus tricks. And it's not even that good.

I think this is far better, it really captures the mood:

Or this one shows how much we really pissed him off:
